In what specific rounds did Manny outjab Cotto? Compubox is telling me that Cotto outlanded manny by 19 jabs. Cotto's stiff jabs against Manny's tapping jabs. I'm not busy at the moment and i could use a few minutes of my time replaying what i'd missed.
On fresh legs, Cotto was doing good too in the early rounds. He managed to cut the ring well and connected some shots of his own. From mid rounds to the end, Cotto's stamina faded and those body shots he took from Trout took their toll.
Kuya, i never said Manny outjab Cotto..Im talking about how Manny answered Cotto's jabs in the early rounds which i also see in the Cotto Trout fight....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08kUTlcjCfU
Round 1 - 0:29
Round 2 - 2:00, 1:58, 1:46
Round 3 - 2:29, 1:50, 1:17
Basic southpaw weapon for ortodox jab
In your observation that Cotto faded in the later rounds due to body shots he took from Trout maybe right..but my observation tells me Cotto submitted due to his mental weakness as always the problem with him...When you see Cotto doing jumping jack in the ring that tells you he doesnt want to fight no more...jumping/running around the ring is not a sign of weak stamina hes simply avoiding Trout in the 2nd half of the fight like he already stop trying to win....
Cotto = Mental Weakness
Bago to ah.
Cotto, fading in late rounds, is old news.
Cotto, mentally weak? That i cannot accept.
Look at his resume. He fought Judah, Mosley, Pacquiao, Clottey, Mayweather and MARGARITO twice? It appears he didn't duck anybody. Trout is not a devastating puncher, why would a newbie intimidate Cotto? Jumping/running around is Cotto's self-preservation trademark. When he's losing steam, he disengages and dances around. As seen in the fight, he was also clinching to survive because he was running out of gas. He was sloppy with his punches, probably arm-tired. If Cotto was weak, he would avoid another confrontation with Margarito. Cotto was planning to fight Canelo had he won over trout. Big plan for a weak man, eh?
